Brandon Roy, Cavs in Preliminary Talks?
Brandon Roy wants to make a comeback, and the Cavaliers may give him a chance to do it with them.
The Cavs are interested in the former Portland Trail Blazers star, who abruptly retired before last season because of chronic knee pain. A person familiar with Cleveland’s interest told the Associated Press on Tuesday that the Cavaliers have not spoken to the 27-year-old or set up a visit with him. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the sides are only in preliminary discussions.
A three-time All-Star, Roy spent five seasons with the Trail Blazers and blossomed into one of the NBA’s rising young stars. He announced his retirement in December, surprising his teammates and Portland’s front office.
After sitting out the lockout-condensed season, Roy wants to try and resume his once promising pro career and there are several teams other than the Cavs interested in seeing if he can still play.
